How to Choose a Heritage Colour Scheme

Heritage homes are a popular choice for many homeowners due to their timeless designs and character-rich features. However, over time heritage house colours can fade to look old and worn. Haymes Paint have four heritage colour schemes to restore the traditional tones of your home & revitalise it with a fresh, modern look.

Heritage 8 - Choosing a heritage colour scheme

Victorian Heritage Homes

Classic heritage colours have found their way back into the colour palettes of today. Soft greys and taupes are now a popular choice for both traditional and modern scheming.

Different shades of grey can be used to create slightly different schemes, while a highlighted front door can add a pop of colour or personality.

The richness of the environment can be echoed through this heritage colour palette, made up of Deep Brunswick Green, Stoneware and Barely There.

Use a chromatic colour palette to highlight and enhance certain areas of the house.

A neutral heritage colour palette is surprisingly versatile, offering a broad range of whites, creams and greys.

These shades appeal to almost everyone and look great on the exterior of both modern and traditional homes, making it a safe and comforting option.

When contemplating the use of bold colours, like red, it is important to consider fixed elements like bricks and roofing. The roof is the perfect place to show off rustic and traditional colours and doesn’t take away from the rest of the colours on the exterior of the house.

Ensure you check with your local council about heritage overlays before embarking on the task of refurbishing your traditional heritage house colours.
